Eee PC T91MT with 1024x600 resolution

Today,
Asus launches the Eee PC T91MT, the first tablet netbook to feature a capacitive multi-touch screen with Windows 7 multi-touch supporting 2-finger gestures.

The device is based on Intel Atom Z520 CPU and will feature 1GB of DDR2 SO-DIMM or an optional 2GB of the same memory. It also features by default a 32GB SSD, but Asus offers 500GB of complementary online WebStorage. Unfortunately, the online storage option seems to be limited to a one-year trial, so expect to pay more for another year.

The T91MT comes with a 8.9’’ swivel LED-backlit glossy WSVGA screen (1024×600), although we can’t grasp why would anyone put a glossy screen on a device that’s “Built for Mobility." Such displays tend to reflect environmental light to an extent that anyone who owns one doesn’t even bother taking them out. The screen features a 256-level sensor and while the device can be operated by fingers, Asus ships an “ergonomically-designed stylus” as well.

In addition, the T91MT packs a VGA connector and as far as connectivity goes, it also comes with WLAN 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, two USB 2.0 connectors, RJ-45 Ethernet, an MMC/SD (SDHC) card reader, and headphone-out and microphone-in ports.

The T91MT is only 1-inch thick and weighs in just under a kilo with the battery installed, or 0.96kg to be precise. The dimensions are 225mm x 164mm x 25.2~28.4mm (WxDxH) and the device is factory equipped with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium. On a side note, customers in China can purchase a Windows 7 Home Basic version as well.
